Compare that with treatment meted out to SWMAC, Bruce et al.

Something stinks here...

The drones are operated by a security screened three-person team including a licensed pilot, a qualified commercial pilot as supervisor, and a camera operator.

Never got why theyd take off from an airport, what the hell are they flying, and speaking of CAA hypocrisyor perhaps just stupidity, why would you allow drones to be flown from the one place in a city they're most likely to get the most interference both in the RF spectrum and physicly, i mean, props, well done them, but why bother? I get they must be high enough to need clearance in the controlled airspace, but again, why? Surely it would be better to take more high res shots or video from lower altitude than to shoot from high up where you interfere with full size aircraft?
All in all, regulation, avoid it, the people who do it are stupid on the whole.
